Mata feels important under Mourinho.

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has no problem with manager Jose Mourinho as he feels loved at Old Trafford. Mata - who moved from Chelsea to United back in 2014 - was made captain for the Red Devils' goalless draw against Burnley over weekend and the Spaniard has been a key member of Mourinho side this season, scoring three goals in 13 appearances. "I do feel an important part of this team, I really do," said Mata.

"I can say I am enjoying my football right now. Since I came to Manchester United we had ups and downs but I always felt an important player under any manager, and I feel important now. "Too many things were said, too many stories were created as well - lies. "When the manager came in, I was always thinking the same as I have always thought: 'I am going to give my best, and I believe in myself and I think this can work out.'

Normal. It's normal. I have said this before and I will say it again - it is a professional relationship. That is it. "That is why where there were so many things said about what is going to happen when the new manager arrived, in my mind I had it clear. "Obviously it is difficult to control all the other things that are said. And obviously some people believe it.

"But the truth is that nothing happened. I came here to play for Manchester United, as one more of the players in the squad and that is it. I started training from the first day I arrived to get fit and be ready, and that is the case now. "I have played a lot of games and enjoyed my football and that's it."
